Love Island is back after an extended delay with a fresh batch of singletons all looking for romance in the villa. If you can't bear to miss an episode, here’s how to watch Love Island 2021 online anywhere in the world!

Love Island's final week is now well underway, and there's been plenty going on in the villa! Recently, Jake Cornish finally told Liberty Poole that he loved her, putting her growing doubts about their relationship to rest. Tyler Cruickshank also asked Kaz Kamwi if she wanted to be exclusive.

Last night (August 17), the villa was rocked by the islanders' votes for least compatible couples. Both Teddy Soares and Faye Winter and Aaron Simpson and Mary Bedford felt betrayed by the islanders who had voted for them without voicing their concerns about their relationship to their faces.

After several couples came to blows over the voting, the mood was lifted by the return of the Love Island talent show. It was an opportunity for the islanders to show off their hidden talents, and everything from life drawing, maths skills,  tap dancing, and even Faye's stand-up routine was on display.

Priya and Brett became the latest couple to be dumped from the island on Tuesday evening, but there was another public vote for favourite couple last night. Which pair will be leaving the villa next?
